What makes Sesame Street successful is that it’s fun enough that parents will actually sit down and watch with their kids.
One of their tricks was to re-purpose modern music with clever parodies. Here’s a few I scrounged up on YouTube.
Cereal Girl (parody of Material Girl)
Hip to Be a Square (parody of Hip to Be Square)
(I Can’t Get No) Cooperation (parody of [I Can’t Get No] Satisfaction)
Kids Love to Brush (parody of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun)
Rebel L (parody of Rebel Yell)
Hey Food (parody of Hey Jude)
If they made an album of these, I’d buy it.
